This subject is a bit of a taboo generally, SO! I couldn’t leave it out of discussion…
To quote an old italian saying "If you spit into the sky it lands on your face."
What is reflected back at you from any mirror is only coming from what you put into it.
Put fear into a mirror and you will see a monster. Start by putting love into your reflection, because mirrors look back at you.
Have you ever noticed that some people get along just fine in the worst possible street and then the worst possible position on that street? Why do others who aren't in such a bad spot seem to cop it? Karma holds some answers, your faith and deeds hold other answers, underground water and ley-lines can hold yet others.
I in rare events have clients coming in specifically asking if they are “cursed.”
In many cases they have been told this in a ‘reading’ elsewhere.
It is important to note that curses do not actually exist except with the understanding that if someone has focused negatively on you, the ‘curse’ or bad ju-ju is only effective if you focus on it and feed it with your own imagination and fear. Even if you aren't actually the target of someone else's 'bad vibes' you can create this kind of attack within yourself by feeding any suspicious thoughts you might have about another person’s intentions towards you. You have the power and options to either take a positive or negative energy on board and propagate it at any time or not. It is up to you.
Often in the cold light of day, if you don’t take yourself too seriously, then when you realize how little other people do, then it won’t bother you as you will realize that it is very few people in life that will form a negative fixation on you and obsess about you all day, most people have far better things to do with their time, given all logic.
If a psychic practitioner senses that you would benefit from a space clearing, healing, or cleansing, they can mention this, and leave you free to make your own choices as to whom and how and if you seek that service whether from them, someone they recommend, someone your trust, or even if you have this service at all. The main thing is to keep in the front of your mind that you always have options.
Reputable psychics and clairvoyants do not charge a low reading price and at the conclusion of the reading pressure you into having them remove ‘curses’ you didn’t know you had, for thousands of dollars.
If a person you visits operates in this way, telling you that you need their help removing a curse, yet they haven’t said anything in the whole reading that you could relate to, and you additionally didn’t feel all that comfortable in your session with them, I would expect your common sense to click in, for you to walk out, and politely decline any further services. But that is all a matter for your free will.
A professional practitioner will also not tell you that you will die young, will not threaten to ‘curse’ you for any reason whatsoever, and will not offer to harm or control the will of others by use of magick on your behalf.
I believe that this field is one in which we practitioners are charged with the responsibility of helping the vulnerable, however unfortunately there are a lonely few that masquerade as psychic practitioners (but aren’t) who help themselves TO the vulnerable.
If you feel doubt about any service provider, stay within your own power, and if uncomfortable you can always make an excuse and leave. If the practitioner does perform any form of magick, they may possibly offer to assist you for your empowerment, but will not offer to bring lovers back, although they may assist you to let go and move on from a toxic connection with a lover. They may also help you with psychic self defense, or assist in the equal empowerment of both parties in a given situation according to highest good and free will.
How to overcome bad ju-ju
When people wish us harm it is at a time we need to focus on resetting our boundaries, clearing, honestly observing our own actions, and reclaiming our inner harmony.
If you are genuinely under some kind of attack, a good way to deflect it quickly is to think: 'Nice to know they care so much as to waste so much of their precious time on me...Even if in this way.' After all, caring is sharing...Sometimes, however, a person may be vulnerable or perhaps unwilling to accept personal responsibility for their own choices, and thus may announce "I am sure I am cursed.". Real curses are very rare, and end up doing more harm to the curser than could ever be inflicted upon the recipient. A curse is only effective if you focus on it and feed it with your own imagination and fear. So, feel the love instead!
Sounds too simple, but it is!
If someone is projecting ill will toward you, it may be time to consider the following :-
How are you not standing up for yourself, or on the other extreme are you standing on someone’s toes?
Are there things you are doing that could be seen as annoying or overstepping over another person's boundaries?
Have you caused someone to feel angst? If so, how about trying to correct what you have done and take responsibility for that and move on?
Take walk in the other persons’ shoes, what corrections do you need to make?
Is someone jealous? Have you been unsupportive of their goals? Or is it something else? Have you done anything that could annoy another?
How can you more peacefully resolve conflict in future or even in the present situation?
Note that your devotion and faith in your version of spirituality and god or 'the source' as well as your pure thoughts, deeds, and intentions coupled with a flexible and realistic attitude about life will see you rise above any ill will or any negative attention being placed upon you.
Guns don’t kill people, people kill people:-
Avoid using lowering yourself to the same level as anyone seeking to bring you down by doing to them as they are doing to you. If you get into an esoteric gunfight you’ll find yourself doing more and more attacks and counter attacks until you are way over your head. The best revenge is to live well and to love with an open heart. This by the way is also the way to break free of any negative energy being sent your way.
You can do many things with energy sent to you. It is after all just energy. That it comes with an intention of any kind is not outside of your ability to change the intention of the energy when it arrives. You can effectively release the energy from intent and place a new intent upon the energy and by so doing use the negative ju-ju sent to you to help you and help others. So if you learn to turn that frown upside down, you will be overcoming any ill will faster than a Reiki Master.
Lastly, don’t give people or things that are not worth it too much of your attention, instead focus yourself on things that are positive and productive in your life in order to maintain your mental, emotional and spiritual well being, your energy field in a positive light.
Something to think about in a normally touchy topic.
But then you and I need not fear anything, not even fear itself.
